's against any gun control. and committee chair, dianne feinstein, who's very good on it. let's watch. >> the question i would pose to the senior start from california is would she deem it went with t the bill of rights for congress to engage in the same endeavor we're contemplating doing in the second amendment in context of the first or fourth amendment? namely, would she consider it constitutional for congress to specify the first amendment shall apply only to the following books? and shall not apply to the books congress has deemed outside the protection of the bill of rights. >> i'm not a sixth grader. senator, i've been on this committee for 20 years. i was a mayor for nine years. i walked in. i saw people shot. i've looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. i've seen the bullets that implode. in sandy hook, youngsters were dismembered. it's fine you want to lecture me on the constitution. i appreciate it. just know i've been here for a long time. i've passed on a number of bills. i've studied the constitution, myself. i'm reasonably well educated. and i thank you

-defense and you can ban others like senator feinstein's bazooka and ted cruz is a jerk, and that is why we sent him to washington. >> and you have senator joe manchin who is a key person here who has an a-rating from the nra and involved in bipartisan talks to hammer out a deal in bipartisan deals, and could a key in reaching a deal be the partisanship happening in this committee meeting? >> well, i certainly believe that joe manchin thinks he is a key, but he is having a hard time not only convincing the republican colleagues, but also other democratic colleagues especially those who are up for election. ted cruz is not going to win any miss congenial ti awards and he is someone who has strong opinion, and it is going to take him a while to understand the bigger senate culture, but he is certainly someone who is not, a little bit of a bull in the china shop is exactly how i'd put it. >> and so not one of the lawmakers here, and perhaps one of the solutions that is talking about, and there are efforts under way in the private sector to try to tackle gun violence, and i will play a clip for you

elections. senator cruz, a bumpy road and a clash the last couple of days with senator feinstein on gun control, rubbing republicans the wrong way. he needs to learn some rules before talking about winning on the national air. >> compared with senator rand paul's filibuster, doing the comparison of that with the alamo. how deep is the divide in the gop? >> the last couple of weeks particularly with rand paul's filibuster has shown a deep divide between the libertarian wing, new senators, the tea party and the establishment, and frankly, i mean, when you have mitch mcconnell trying to have it both ways, i don't envy them bringing everyone together. >> house speaker boehner was on abc "this week this morning," angela and went on to say that the difference between him and president obama was that he wanted to do something about the debt crisis now. if they both agree on the debt crisis, though, how realistic is it to expect them to work together on balancing the budget? >> speaker boehner is tremendously beholden to his party. unfortunate for speaker boehner, these are folks that are not w

of opposition, and that bill, senator feinstein's assault weapons bill passed on a party line vote in the committee. but because it's tough isn't a reason not to move forward. i don't think we need anymore reason to motivate us than newtown. >> the committee meeting turned a little testy. i want to play this exchange for you viewers. >> it seems to me that all of us should begin as our foundational document with the constitution. and the second amendment and the bill of rights provides that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. >> i'm not a sixth grader. i've been on this committee for 20 years. i thank you for the lecture. incidentally, this does not prohibit -- you use the word prohibit. it exempts 2,271 weapons. isn't that enough? >> what can we expect to see and hear in the senate when that bill reaches the floor? >> well, unfortunately you're going to hear a lot more of the same that you just heard from senator cruz. a lot of it patronizing, as i think that exchange was. unfortunately, misapprehension what the second amendment prohibits. there i

and donilon talks about it and senator feinstein talks about it. the china loves to sign treaties, but don't honor any of them. remember the ripping off of dvd's and china was selling them on the streets. they said we're going to clamp down on copy right. and the name hackers, it bothers me, i think of somebody trying to get a bank account or information like that or trying to drive up traffic on a website, but they're trying to get state secrets. that doesn't sound to me like hackers. >> not only are they spies, but they're saboteurs going after critical infrastructure. the great 2003 blackout in the northeast, probably caused by a chinese hacker causing a cascade and a loss of power. and americans died in that. this is a serious issue. it's not just spying or hacking. >> during the heatwave we had folks dieing, the elderly. they're going off certain agencies and we know that microsoft has been infiltrated, apple has been looked at and google has pulled out of china in part because of this. what are they going after? >> they're going after everything, not just the national security establ
